NHL Scores Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Philadelphia Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers come into town to face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets. After a two-game skid, the Flyers have rebounded nicely with two straight wins. Their latest victory was against the Buffalo Sabres. The Columbus Blue Jackets are getting ready for the Flyers and they are coming off a 5-2 loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins. They will be looking to get back to their winning ways, so this should be a fun game to watch and wager on.
In their last game, the Flyers defeated the visiting Buffalo Sabres 5-2 as well. They received scoring from Jacob Voracek, Oscar Lindblom, James van Reimsdyk, Claude Giroux and Travis Sanheim. They were also bolstered by the fact that Claude Giroux posted an assist and goalie Brian Elliott stopped 34 shots in order to pick up the victory nodd.
When the Pittsburgh Penguins came to visit, they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2. The only goals the Columbus Blue Jackets received were in the second period and they were from Oliver Bjorkstrand and Cam Atkinson. Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky absorbed the loss with four goals allowed on 26 shots faced. Needless to say, things didn’t go well for the Blue Jackets in their last contest.

NHL Picks Philadelphia Flyers vs. Columbus Blue Jackets
Admittedly, when it comes to this game, I just am not sure how to call it. It’s a tough call because both of these teams are fairly evenly matched. Like other experts, I’ll probably just throw the chalk out there and pull something out of my ear here. Personally, I like the Blue Jackets, simply because they have the better record and they are at home.
